this afternoon. the hope was he would dial back on some of his decrees and that put himself above the law. three important points. number one, he said he decree applies only to sovereign matters of state, whatever that means. as far as we can tell it doesn't mean much of anything. the second thing, his decree to shield his decisions from any legal action didn't aim to stop judicial work. in other words he wished the judges across the country hadn't walked out. but they did. he tried to make himself a dictator. so he has that problem. and maybe most importantly here is the latest word, he said he will not tolerate anyone working to overthrow a legitimate government. it is all about semantics here. you could certainly say they were working to overthrow the legitimate government. he forgot to mention the government was put in-law git matily has now changed -- legitimately has now changed. and if that stands there is clearly going to be trouble. egypt is at a turning point as mohamed morsi is speaking. anymore news of note i will bring it to you. >>> the white house vows if -- there will be conseque

in law that would help us avoid the kind of obstruction and the kind of showdowns we have had in the past over the debt ceiling. in fact, the idea was not new. it was his original idea that has been the law of the land that followed. and he offered and challenged senator reid to bring this matter for consideration by the senate. he said he would bring this to a vote in 20 minutes. and we would decide up or down whether the debt ceiling problem would be resolved once and for all under senator mcconnell proposal. and then senator mcconnell objected, say, no, no, we need 60 votes. for those who do not follow the senate, 60 votes is equivalent to a filibuster vote. so this may be a moment in senate history when a senator made a proposal, and when given a opportunity for a vote, he filibustered his own proposal. i think we have reached a new spot in the history of the senate we have never seen before. i will ask a parliamentarian to really look into this. i don't think this has ever happened before. but this calls into question if this was a kind of offer that would consider to be good faith.
with abortion. the country was a constructive accommodation on abortion, liberalizing the laws, the court yanked the subject of public discourse. let democracy take care of this, but on the other hand, they could say it's now safe to look at this because there's something like an emerging consensus. the opposition of gay marriage is dying. it's old people. >> that's true. but, at the same time, james carville, right now at least, split the difference position that george argued, 41 states still outlaw gay marriage. >> right. it depends on whether they're going to allow this to happen. his logic point is actually correct. the election just matters in profound ways, look at salt lake city, the mormon church after the election said, well, maybe we're going to change our position on homosexuality is a choice you're not born that way. the effects of the election reverberates all of the way through society. i can't believe that they took this up. the fact that they took it up, just tells me that they're going to uphold some of these. >> mary, not just the election, but the trend has been pretty clear
